announced their will get a license. They do it because they want to enable . I wonder what they think about shipping also on , because their business-model requires a and F-Droid is not providing that.

Today, I've built another tiny tool. It's for doing bulk ASN lookups.

Not sure whether I should upload it to pypi or just keep it on gitlab.

#Signal is implementing more anti-pattern typical of #surveillancecapitalism and walled gardens:
1) requires and captures your phone number
2) rejects any form of federation
3) requires google Play and rejects #fdroid
4) prohibits unofficial clients or forks
5) leaks URL previews
6) requires using the full GUI client and does not provide an equivalent library
7) captures your contact list
8) requires filling a captcha

Imagine a day, where the first app everyone installs is f-droid and playstore is the new IE.

I just published PGPainless version 0.1.0.
After two years of development and a dozen alpha versions this is the first stable release. PGPainless is designed to make #openpgp with #bouncycastle painless to use with #java and on #android.

Get it while its hot!

I wonder how much fdroid will grow now when Google is removing Fediverse apps from play

Wer von Euch ist der Ansicht, dass #Apps zum Bevรถlkerungsschutz wie die

#NinaWarnApp oder


#FreieSoftware / #OpenSource sein sollten?

Wenn ja, dann bitte teilen.

Now that #mozilla has expressed their desire for truly free software is diminishing in favor of profits. Maybe check out #librewolf as a firefox alternative

here is a short video about it by @ChrisWere

Twitter blocks us for promoting Free Software alternatives. A good example why tech monopolies are dangerous.

Thesis: If F-Droid would be pre-installed on Android, more people would use free software?

Could Google or generally smartphone vendors be legally forced to ask users if they want to install F-Droid, just like Microsoft has been forced to let the user choose their browser? Is this a similar case?

#Tor is on a bit of shaky ground right now. About 10% of exit nodes are run by a #malicious operator, down from about 25% a couple months ago.

The attacker is preforming a #ManInTheMiddle attack on any url that isn't explicitly #https with #SSL stripping.

Here are some things you can do to protect yourself:
2. Set Tor browser's security settings to "highest." You can survive just fine without JavaScript.
3. Avoid doing anything with bitcoin over Tor. Bitcoin laundering services seem to be the attacker's only target right now, but keep in mind that all traffic not explicitly encrypted is compromised.
3. Make sire you have Https Everywhere on.
Make sure to use an adblocker on that site.

F-Droid is a free open source alternative to Google Play. It's like an app store, but only has FOSS apps. You can follow at:
